I am going to preface this by saying that I used to be fairly athletic, but with career choice(restaurant manager), long hours and a family, my wife and I have put on a tremendous amount of weight, especially after the birth of our third child.
I will start with me, since the wife isn't ready to post her info.
I am 5'7 1/2" tall and as of Monday the Monday the 8th, I weighed 279.8 lbs.
What I have done is started the fat fast with myself and my wife, with the intention of moving to the velocity diet in 2 weeks. Mostly for motivation to see the fat lost.
The plan is as follows:
meals: We are blending GNC 100% Whey and GNC Mega whey for our shakes. My wife is doing 1 scoop of each for 5 meals, I am doing 1 scoop of 100% and 2 of Mega 5 times per day, 6 on leg day. Each meal we alternate between flax seed oil and cocunut oil(MCT).
Before her first shake(she started on Friday August 12th) she takes 1 Fahrenheit, 1 betaine(she has liver concerns) and a gnc cla.
I take a HOT-ROX, and a cla. with the first shake we both take a coQ10 and hw\er a 1/2 of a centrum and me a 2 gnc mega men.
After working out we both take a calcium pill, and eat an apple with our shake and oil. I also take 1 tsp of micronized creatine.
the rest is simply shakes and alternating the oil. she takes her other 1/2 of centrum after lunch, I take my other 2 mega men vitamins. Before bed we both pop a 5-HTP and I take a ZMA.
She consumes a minium of 1 gallon of ice water, I do about 1.5 gallons.
I fell off and cheated on Thursday, and the wife and I agreed to commit to do this together.
I am doing pure resistance training this week, and will do some bike and treadmill next week. The wife is doing some treadmill and a little resistance training.
I am attempting to do 5 or 6 workouts per week for 30-45 minutes, as I work about 60-70 hours per week.
I had bio-electricl impedience done about 3 months ago and I was told I have about 212 lbs of muscle/skeleton and water.
After High School I was about 185 with a 2 pack.
I belive that if I can maintain the muscle under the fat, I coulb be about 220 and be fairly
That is just theory though.
Currently the wife (in 2 days, has lost 2.6 lbs, I have lost 12.6 lbs(I started on Monday)am at 267.2 today.
My energy level is still good, I think in part to cocnut oil/flax alternation, the HOT-ROX, and the ZMA
We both however do have some "queasiness" in our guts.
I hust wanted to get some advice/results/opinions from others who have tried these diets. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
